Home safe. Hope everyone has a safe trip home. Awesome Gathering. I think it was the best ever. Great crowd and Tony is really making things really work well for us. The floating patio is such a great place for our evening dining and gathering for fun and karaoke.

See you all next year.

Here's all my video of G12. I would have had more river run footage except I was driving most of the time. So capt Dave drove for a while on the way back and I got a little footage of the gorgeous views in the valley. And just to be clear, I didn't zoom in on Bob's "flaw" until he mentioned it. And in fact, didn't know about it until he mentioned it. I wasn't trying to pick on him but just want to encourage everyone not to sweat the small stuff. It is not easy to make that vertical seam look good bright but Bob did it. Enjoy!

Here's my rough cut video - https://youtu.be/x7IeLbltu4o

I enjoy working with Windows MovieMaker and wouldn't mind doing a much better video of the Gathering, but I need more and better photos and footage. I set up a dropbox folder where you can upload any photos and videos you wish to share. The link to the folder is https://www.dropbox.com/sh/etwofwm0t0j3 ... tpRaa?dl=0

It was wonderful seeing everyone and all the boats.

Not quite awesome, it was hot enough to fry an egg on the dock, or the top of my bald head, your choice.

We made it back to Philadelphia in one piece after a 12.5 hour drive. I will post a few pictures tomorrow but, for now, I would like to say how much I enjoyed this gathering. Craig doesn't go on the forum, but he wanted me to tell everyone thanks for putting up with him. I will tell you he hasn't changed in the 52 years I have known him. We both had a great time and look forward to next year... I would like to thank the staff at HB for the preparation prior to our arrival as well as the support we all received while there. We all owe Bill a round of applause for the way he makes this thing such a success each year. It was nice to see old friends and meet new ones. It seems we should have many boats next year that we haven't seen before. Thanks to everyone... All take care... Neel
